Absolute buy recommendation

Freddy aus Berlin, 26.08.2018
I got the power amp for my subwoofer at home. I run 4 Omnes Audio Sw 10.1 subwoofers in BR.
Recently, I had a Fame Quad 4150 power amplifier in operation. However, I was very dissatisfied with the power amp. The mechanical humming of the power amp was too loud for me, when you turn on the home fuse was triggered very often because they had no soft start and the performance has not convinced me synonymous.

I have long considered which power amplifier I buy as a replacement for it. I came across the Samson by accident. I found the built-in DSP particularly interesting. Unfortunately, I have not found any information about the features in the network. With which edge steepness can be separated, for example, is not even in the manual.
I also found no experience how loud the power amp is in operation, or the fan. After a few weeks, I did not care because I needed them now and just ordered them. Blind, so to speak.

I am completely thrilled. The power amp is very quiet, comparable to the fan of a new laptop. Even for me not disturbing and I'm really sensitive to something. I also had a Pronomic TL 400 that was modified with Silent fans, but even those were louder.

The functions are very uncommon, limiter, EQ with adjustable Q value, separation of up to 48 db per octave with simultaneously adjustable Butterrone characteristic etc.

The Performace is much more powerful than the Fame Quad Power Amplifier. Before, I had 150 watts Pro subwoofer, now 200 watts per subwoofer, with me now 2 in series on a channel run. So 8 ohms. Significantly more punch, pressure, maximum level and less distortion. For comparison, I had 114 db at the listening place now 118 db. That's a word, though I never brought the Fame amp to the electrical limit because the distortion was just too big for me to produce.

From the processing I think they are great for the price. It has enough value for me. The operation is simple and opens up quickly. You can save several Presest, but I have not used that yet.
What could be annoying for some is the quite long loading time when going from one setting to the next. I do not care anyway.

The only criticism is possibly that it does not allow bridge operation. Personally, I do not care, but for many a vll. KO criterion.

Summarized:
+ Extensive DSP functions
+ built-in limiter
+ Performance data realistic
+ Very quiet in operation
+ For my eyes a valuable look and workmanship
+ For the price of 265 euros absolute top class (is my personal opinion)

- no bridge operation possible
- dirketer A / B Comparison of different settings difficult because it takes a few seconds to be implemented

CONCLUSION:
I think the power amp is perfect for home applications. It is quiet, has a DSP, sufficient power and does not look bad. Clear purchase recommendation!

PS And of course a compliment to Thomann. The delivery was very fast!

First set up this home to a pair of high-fidelity speakers to learn the features of the step and can only say that it sounds better than expected really neat.
The fan is very quiet and barely heard.
The only thing one can complain about is that you can not access the settings via computer or bring up someone curve in the display, it is difficult to know how to set the PQ.
Has now replaced 2 older LAB1000 with 2 SXD5000 to the top / base in a fixed installation and think it does good and sounds great.
The effect of the steps feel as Supplied, it is clearly more gunpowder in here than LAB1000 steps.

You could sum up the whole idea of a PA power amplifier in a single word - sound. The power amp is a crucial part of a musician’s live sound.
